Curriculum

The Georgia Tech Executive MBA program focuses on executive management and strategic skills for longer-term professionals. EMBA students begin with a common foundation of 14 traditional MBA courses, similar to those in the other MBA programs but emphasizing those skills most relevant to managers. Students then focus on one of two elective tracks–Global Business and Management of Technology–depending on their interests; each track has nine courses, the last three of which involve completing a capstone project. A two-week international residency is required of EMBA students in both tracks, and an Academic Program Manager is assigned to each EMBA student to help with tasks including managing class schedules and ordering materials.
